We spent some time in Zirc and in the neighborhood. First day we visited the Library of the Abbey, which was really astonishing. We had also a look on the church from inside. The guide was up to the task and told interesting stories as well.

We had a lovely evening stroll around the entrance gardens. The building is beautiful and we were sad that we could not go in as it was shut. Don't miss out on a stroll around and reading the information boards about the Building's history, even when closed.

Which i would suggest is to see the old library. It is a living libraray and has books from the 14th century as well. Very spectecular.... the wood and the shelves... wonderful. The pictures you can find in the internet can give you a taste how it looks like...

We spent our holiday near to Zirc with our dog. We wanted to visit the Abbey, but unfortunately we could not enter the garden with our dog on leash. In many other countries (e.g. Austria, Italy), such sites are dog friendly, the management knows that tourists with dogs have no chance to leave their pets anywhere else.

It's a must, the historical library is awesome! We had our private tour as there were not many visitors, but we thoroughly enjoyed it.

What a beautiful holy place! Simply amazing and breathtaking! It has museum and a huge library and botanical gardens!! FYI, soon it will have it's own lager! Zirc will make the famous lager very soon! If you around Zirc you must stop here and see this beauty. Well worth a visit!
